US Sen. Warren Vows to Back Gun Control Measures

elizabeth-warrenBOSTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren has met with Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to push for tougher gun control measures in the wake of the recent elementary school shooting in Connecticut.

Warren said Friday that she supports three proposals including one requiring criminal background checks for all gun sales.

The Massachusetts Democrat said she also backs a ban on assault weapons and another proposal to make gun trafficking a federal crime.

Menino, co-founder of the group Mayors Against Illegal Guns, said lawmakers need to stand up to those opposed to gun regulations including the National Rifle Association.

Menino also said Gov. Patrick should name a gun-control advocate to fill Sen. John Kerry’s seat if Kerry becomes secretary of state.

That interim appointee would serve until a special election is held.

    U allow them to start changing the constitution, wait people and see what’s next.
    The rest of freedoms u care about will slowly go away if they don’t benefit the government.
